Timor-Leste willing to serve in UN peacekeeping operationsListen /
Timor-Leste will do its best to give back to the international community for the support it has received over the years.
That's what the country's Foreign Minister, José Luis Guterrez told UN Radio on Monday.
"We will do our best to give back the support that we have received all over the years. We have already sent our police force to Kosovo and we are considering to send also our military forces as part of the United Nations peacekeeping force anywhere when the UN requests us to do so."
UNMIT was established by the Security Council in 2006 to help the country consolidate stability and build democracy following major political, humanitarian and security crises.
Timor-Leste, a former Portuguese colony, was occupied and controlled by Indonesia in 1975 until it became independent in 2002.
